New Bully trademark filed

Take-Two files trademark for possible sequel to Rockstar's Bully

Take-Two Interactive has filed a new Bully trademark, fueling hope that there will be a sequel to Rockstar's school-based action adventure

Anyone not locked in an isolation ward will know that Rockstar's open-world adventure behemoth Grand Theft Auto 5 is just shy of two months to release. What they may not know, however, is that another Rockstar IP may be in the process of being either revived or rebooted.

The eagle-eyed news hounds over at gaming website Gamespot have noticed that Take-Two has filed a new trademark for an IP called 'Bully' to the United States Patent & Trademark Office.

The trademark applies to, amongst other things, "computer and video game programs and software; downloadable digital materials, namely, wallpapers, screensavers, digital music files, and graphics, videos, films, multimedia files, live action programs, motion pictures, and animation in the field of video games and computer games"

Anyone who picked up a copy of Canus Canem Edit, Rockstar Games's adventure set in a school, will know that the game was originally called 'Bully' (the title was changed for versions sold outside the USA).

Bully courted its fair share of controversy on release back in 2008, but it was critically lauded by most video games reviewers and is currently sitting with an overall score of 8.7 on metacrtic.

So is a sequel to Bully planned? Or is it a reboot? Which would you prefer and what would you like see? Tell us in the comment section below.
